Blueberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Blueberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Two cookie recipes in a week? It seriously must be Christmastime. It’s a time of year closely associated with friends and family, laughter and good cheer, cozy fires and warm sweaters. We all love it…but it’s all a facade hiding a dark truth. Yes, I’m about to reveal the true meaning of Christmas: ’tis the...
Molasses Crinkles

Molasses Crinkles

So the other day the printer in my office mysteriously went off, quickly printing off several copies of a molasses crinkles recipe. The office manager went around, asking each of us if we had printed the sheets, but no one claimed them. It was so random. After a couple hours of pointing figures and conspiracy...

Hi guys! My minty white hot chocolate recipe is being featured on the Food & Wellness section of Fox News Magazine. It’s totally flattering and exciting to be included in the “11 Indulgent Hot Chocolates to Heat Up Your Nights” for 2013. Oh yeah…and the picture I took is their main picture. Who’s feeling like a baller? This...
Food at the First Thanksgiving

Food at the First Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Ever since I graduated college, it seems like Thanksgiving sneaks up on me. Sure, co-workers chat about it, but usually it’s just exclamations like “sweet dude, 4 days off!” and “I can’t wait to get out of here”. I’m totally guilty with thinking that holidays are now just free vacation days, but...

Product of GIR: Ultimate Spatula + GIVEAWAY

Hey guys! A company contacted me a couple of weeks ago to see if I’d like to try out one of their products. Free stuff is awesome, so I opened their email and started reading. Their website seemed cool enough, and the lady who emailed me was really nice! But the product was a spatula....
Grilled Vegetable Sandwich w/ Balsamic & Almonds

Grilled Vegetable Sandwich w/ Balsamic & Almonds

If I was a practical food blogger, I’d follow the rest of the blogosphere and post holiday recipes to attract visitors and “oo”s and “ah”s from all my awesome readers. But nope, I’m ignoring social conventions to write about a grilled vegetable sandwich that screams summer. Thanksgiving is next week, I get it. But it...
Banana Oat Bread

Banana Oat Bread

Lately it seems like every Sunday morning I’ve been making banana bread. Either I’m Betty Crocker reincarnated or I bought way too many bananas that ended up going bad. Considering I keep forgetting to bring one to work when I leave in the morning, I can safely say that it’s the latter. But you know...
BBQ Pumpkin & Potato Skewers

BBQ Pumpkin & Potato Skewers

Before I begin, let me just get this out of the way – these pictures aren’t my favorite. As I’m writing this post, they’re bothering me more and more. Total brown-town. If I wasn’t such a lazy blogger, I’d remake this recipe just to snap better pictures. Add in a splash of color or a...
Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Seeds

Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Seeds

In another life, I may have been the Great Pumpkin. At the very least, I was its groupie. No, I’m not obsessed with that Charlie Brown movie (in fact, I barely remember it…don’t judge), it’s just it’s a great time of the year. Everyone comes together to joke around, huddle around campfires, and go for...
Pumpkin Mousse Parfait

Pumpkin Mousse Parfait

Earlier this week I mentioned how my folks and I went pumpkin picking. The same day I delivered a few apples and a perfectly round pumpkin to my grandma’s house. All those fall goodies totally made her day! Grandparents are so cool. Anyway, we were talking about food and ended up on the topic of...
Apple & Pumpkin Picking 2013

Apple & Pumpkin Picking 2013

Hello everyone! The past few weekends have been absolutely gorgeous in New Jersey. Due to a slowing real estate season, I’ve been able to sneak in some me-time, and it’s been absolutely amazing. Anyone who works multiple jobs or long hours will understand; when you have an extra second of life, you actually savor it....
Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

‘Tis apple season. You can literally feel it in the autumn air. There’s a mix of crispness and warmth…which is coincidentally a great combo for fall food. In fact, everything I’ve been cooking lately has included at least one apple. Seasonal fruit is just so darn tasty! I have a few recipes up my sleeve...
